    This "new" version of the All-New X-Men has been a bit hit and miss so far, but this issue works well. Read Full Review

    This issue serves as a transitional chapter as the books shifts from the opening conflict with The Blob and Toad to the events of "The Apocalypse Wars." Frankly, it reads more like a filler issue than an integral addition to the series. Read Full Review

    With the coming “Apocalypse War,” it is safe to say this book is in store for a needed change. It is a shame that it takes an event to do so, but if Hopeless and company can remember the excellent roster of mutants at their disposal, the book can great again. Read Full Review

    It read more like a Dr Strange book featuring Beast than an X-Men one

    I thought the last issue was a great change of pace so I was excited to see where they went. Turns out Scott's near death was saved by a last minute interaction with Pickles. We now shift gears and have a moment where Beast doubts science. The problem other than ignoring the issue brought before is why is he doubting science now? There are so many ways to travel time in the Marvel Universe and it is not like they are trying hard to do so. I thought they had settled in to this life because of that. Now I am told they are desperate to get home and the fact that science can not do it he is going to extreme measures. Is it that extreme? He has fought along side Magik. I would think he would be somewhat accepting of magic at this point. I love Doctor Strange but his inclusion here seemed like an attempt to shoehorn a crossover before the movie comes out. Strange makes reference to his own series with the missing magic but it is a little hard to tell at what point this is. In the end I don't think everyone put a lot of effort into this issue.
